Callaway Big Bertha B21 Vs Ping G425 Irons Comparison And Review

You know there is going to be a lot of attention on any irons that Ping or Callaway release and that is certainly the case with these 2.

The G425’s are Ping’s first release since 2019 and a much anticipated upgrade to the popular G400 & G410’s that offer distance, forgiveness and feel.

The B21’s carry on the legendary Big Bertha name with a quality set of game improvement irons that pack tons of beginner friendly features.

Club Technology

The G425 have a thin, variable thickness face that offers forgiveness and the irons are smaller and more compact than their predecessors.

The Big Bertha Irons have large heads with wide soles that offer a huge sweet spot. The irons are also crafted using AI to ensure the weighting in each clubs is optimized for performance.

The B21’s are going to be perfect for beginners. They have high lofts and the tungsten weighting offers a low Center of Gravity for high loft.

Ping have also on higher lofts and claim these irons offer ‘Towering Distance’. The Cascading soles and weighted head and hosel make it a walk in the park to get these irons into the air and the offset ensures straight, consistent strikes.

If you are just starting in golf, go for the B21’s but if you want more feel, playability and control as a better player, aim for the G425’s.

For us overall, the Sim Max are very hard to beat for the average player or beginner.
